PyroDinos -3 pack- (600ml)

Regular price $87.00 $69.00 Sale

PyroDinos are bioluminescent marine plankton classified as Pyrocystis fusiformis (aka Dinoflagellates).  Also incorrectly referred to as tiny shrimp lights, baby sea monkeys and The LEDs of the Sea

3 x 200ml (7oz)

PyroDinos use light to grow (like a plant) and glow blue at night when disturbed.  The natural light produced by these plankton is called Bioluminescence.  PyroDinos will only light up at night, in the dark when gently swirled or shaken.  Enjoy them in the spout pouch or your favorite bottle or clear container.  

Do not drink PyroDinos!  No really - do not drink them!


After delivery:

It is OK to leave the PyroDinos in their white Spout Pouch for 1 month after delivery.  Our PyroDinos have enough resources in the pouch to sustain them for 4 weeks.  PyroDinos will require daily lighting (low to moderate room lighting), 8- 12 hours a day.  Loosen cap once a week to allow for some air-exchange.

    Very happy with my PyroDinos, excellent service

    I've ordered a couple batches of these, and was extremely happy with my purchase both times.They are beautiful creatures, the glow can be surprisingly bright in a dark room. I love the mysterious blue-teal color of the light they give off, it's less like the fiery orange streaks that you might see a firefly produce, and more like an otherwordly spell being cast before your eyes, not to be too dramatic, lol. Communication with the store was great, and they made sure that the creatures arrived on time and healthy. If you're thinking about getting some of these, and are on the fence about it, I say just go for it, you won't be disappointed.

    My favorite houseplants!

    My 2+ sphere colony is over a year old and going strong. I bought another pouch of Dinos to expand a bit and more nutrients to keep them happy.

    This batch is doing much better than my first. During the cold spell we had here in SD, I think my dinos got a little to cold. So far my new batch is doing great with the warmer weather.

    Second purchase to date

    Dinos arrived healthy and ready to glow! They arrived quicker than I thought they would, which was nice. Would highly recommend (and already have)! Plan on buying from Pyrofarms from now on


    Excellent customer service and quality packaging to protect my little dynos from cold temperatures. It only took 48 hours for them to adjust and start glowing beautifully at night!
